The Tasteful Topsheet Thread

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

Enough with the Ugly Topsheet Threads.

 

Life is too short and I'm bored at work. Post up your favorite topsheets.

 

Mine: Sultan 94s

First pair of skis that I bought with graphics that I actually like.

Most of Moment's skis have pretty cool graphics, my favorite is probably the stiletto

These skis really do look good. I skied them a few times this year and got comments on them every time. The best one was "What are these, some kind of professional skis?"50627.jpg

The graphics on these are amazing..........and I just bought a pair....... 8 months till January....... soooo happy right now.

I think the artwork on pretty much all of the Volkl's is highly impressive... or at least their all mountain and powder skis anyway.

I like the way the red bindings offset the black.  They look better in person.

You ever seen my VISTs Phil? Pretty much the opposite of those.

post #10 of 33

Phil, I really like those ski's what brand are they?  Here is a pic of a couple of my favorite top sheets.  Dynastar 8800 and Rossignol Haute Route.  (taken at Alta 4.30.11) I have to say I like most wood grain looking skis.  the Ski Trab Stelvio is one of the best.  I also like the simple clean graphics of the 60's like the Strato and Hart Javelin

Vist. 

post #12 of 33

Phil, those Vist's are classic and very nice looking. I've seen them on the hill many times, and they look great with the well dressed set.

 

However, Ghost your Flat Black skis with the Porsche name on them are well very FLAT looking, and the Porsche name might as well be Prada or some other designer boutique name that's really just a meaningless "status" label...

I always loved the classic look of these Rossignol Anniversary (Olympic 41) re-issue skis from a few years ago, but never bought them as I have only been buying flat skis the past few years. Are there any skis out there today that have a nice classic wood topsheet, that also come flat and have a 78mm to 84mm waist width?

Yes there are, but they cost a fortune. Bogner for example.

A pair of Sterling skis was the subject of a giveaway contest on epicski last year.  I thought they were good looking.

Here's the favorite of ones I have:

Those are by Carey Quinton Haider.

She's done a bunch for Moment:

I'm still trying to find a picture of the moment Komikaze I think it was. Around '08.

I do like these skis. The graphics on some skis these days are a bit childish for my taste.

post #25 of 33

Kastle is doing one of the best jobs (excluding the BMX's). I also like the Rossi Experience series:

I like the looks of the BMX skis especially the 118 and the 128. I'd love to ski the pink one if they made it bigger.

I think these look awsome. Just plain simple, but it stands out in todays crazy graphics.

Less is clearly more.  (But maybe that's a generational thing.)
